Default old school probs

Hello, I'm working with an old HP computer I bought back in 98 it was runnin 98se. I decided to pull it out of the closet and hook it up. This was the first computer I had ever touched and I'm pretty sure I ruined it and stuffed it in the closet... anyhow my issue. I turn on the pc and all that loads is "operating system not found" and that's it. I cant seem to get passed this no matter what. I even try to use the hp system restore disks and still nothin. I have tried to enter bios but I cannot get in. I was goin to attempt a boot from my jump drive but I can't get to that, I am out of ideas and hope that maybe you guys have some suggestions.

Thanks a million for you wisdom!

Format/Reload w/CD.

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
